Discover historic and picturesque river towns on this unique small ship adventure through the Northeastern US and Canada. Embark in Manhattan’s New York Harbor, with postcard-perfect views of the Statue of Liberty. Transit the famed Erie Canal and witness the lowering of our one-of-a-kind retractable pilot houses, allowing the ship to travel under low bridges and through narrow locks where other cruise ships cannot go. Journey through the stunning 1000 Islands along the St. Lawrence River, filled with scenic islands and wildlife habitats. In Quebec City a distinctly French culture, cobblestone streets, and historic architecture awaits. Explore the beautiful riverside village of Port de Saguenay, with a backdrop of the Saguenay River, nestled beneath towering cliffs and enveloped in pine. Here, cobalt waters attract schools of Beluga Whales, making the Saguenay one of the world’s premier whale-watching destinations. Onboard wildlife experts, local musicians, and renowned historians enhance this spectacular 14-day cruise experience, which concludes perfectly with a full day of leisure in eclectic yet metropolitan Montreal.
